Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King already has the best punter play of the NFL season to his credit: this 27-yard scamper after a botched snap on fourth-and-24 (with a little help from some good old-fashioned Jacksonville Jaguars incompetence).

In Week 9, King submitted a strong entry for the celebration of the year, regardless of position or play type.

With his team up 10 early in the third quarter against the division rival Denver Broncos, King expertly placed a 37-yard punt on Denver's 2-yard line. Even more expert were his post-punt dance moves.

Followed by a pony ride.

Remember: Antonio Brown got an unsportsmanlike penalty for three pumps' worth of dancing after a touchdown.

Behind running back Latavius Murray's 127 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns, the Raiders won 30-20 to improve to 7-2 and take a half-game lead over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.

The Broncos are 6-3. Oakland and Denver will play again in Week 17.
